La petite maison

A short list...

Swallows, an eiderdown
The scent of roses, castles, stud farms, the marks of history
A landscape designer, butterflies
Fresh croissants, a desk to take notes on
Stone stairs, worn by year of use
An artist, books to read
A bunch of scabious, a hen wandering by
A blue room, the house is not far, the garden is open...
